I am shattered. Totally and utterly shattered. The saying goes, "Women! You can't live with them and you can't live without them." I think this needs updating to reference work instead, cos I've managed perfectly fine without the former so far; though that could be down to not having the time to think, let alone think about someone else.
For the past couple of months, I have been working on an asp.net application - after having 4 days 'training' - which was due to go live yesterday. For the past 4 to 5 weeks, I have been working 12 to 15 hours a day, and the last 4 weekends, in an effort to make up for my lack of asp.net and windows active directory knowledge and experience, in order to meet the deadline.
I missed it.
I didn't think I would as everything worked well on deployment to test, but deployment to production at the customer site was a totally different affair.
Finally got it to work about 40 minutes ago - at least, I hope I got it to work because I don't know how much longer I can handle this - and I've been asked to stay late tonight to make further changes for the CTI integration, which we couldn't do in test or development because we couldn't get the software working!
The hardest thing to deal with here is the lack of time I have had available to do the things that I need to do. Like train for the Great North Run.
Over the past 6 weeks I have run about 10 times because of having to work late on the project. 10 times. I am in serious trouble. There is no way I can complete a half-marathon with so little training and preparation. I haven't even had time to book a place to stay and it really looks like I'll be kipping in the car :-(
I need a miracle.
